Sunday 2nd February at 15:00 to 17:00 will be held a Walk through the Art Nouveau Villas of Brunate.
Meeting point: Piazza Bonacossa, close to the funicular station.
Price: € 15,00
Special visit to Villa Cantaluppi Giuliani and to the historic center of Brunate, the most representative village of the rich bourgeois resort of the late nineteenth-early twentieth century.
The tour will starts from the historic funicular square, where the visitors of the past found themselves between streetmarkets of products and “souvenirs houses”, then continue to the historic panoramic hotels and beautiful Art Nouveau villas, to discover the two different forms of holiday.
The partecipants, just like tourists of the past, will be involved in the fashion and customs of the Belle Epoque on Lake Como: from the “tubs” of bejeweled ladies to the pastimes of men in frack, from modern aperitifs to elegant after-dinner drinks on the terrace. The tour will end in the living rooms of Villa Cantaluppi Giuliani, the summer residence of the family of the same name, to discover the bourgeois holidays in the villa.
Here, it will be possible to get to know the curiosities of the historical owners, to relive the rooms, the furniture and the Art Nouveau decorations, which, today as then, give light, colour and joy to the residences.
The interiors of Villa Cantaluppi Giuliani are heated. Comfortable shoes and clothing are recommended, the route winds between ascents and descents for about 1.5 km.
